Two brothers growing up in the shadows of the Ballymun flats are on very different paths. Sports-mad Philly is on his way to the hallowed turf of Croke Park; John to exile, heartbreak and ultimately tragedy. But were these paths set in stone? Or does our fate lie in the choices we make?
The fictionalised account of Philly McMahon's multi-award-winning memoir will reach a whole new generation of readers, in a moving coming-of-age story for our times.
